Ahh reminds me of the game boy color. ;) Nice job.
This is awesome! Really great spin on an already great song.
Nice work. My brother and I are working on a cover of this song. Downstrokes are tough. Awesome song though.
Great MOP tone though! You should try for the whole song.
Good stuff. I can't help but think John Petrucci with this riff.
Incredible tone outta that 7-string!(right?) Do you mic up amps or use VSTs? If you mic I'm guessing you have an isolation box...
Right when I think my recording quality is acceptable....I listen to something of yours and get depressed! XD
WOW thats a big compliment!!
So I'm using a 7string for the rhythms and thats it.
Call me old school, but I keep coming back to mic'ing up amps.
No isolation box. Just a 11'x11' spare bedroom with carpet floor, and a close-mic'ing technique.
Haha thanks so much man; I'm flattered but truly dont utilize some of that pro gear!! Just makin' it work as best as i can! =]
Pretty sick lead tone/harmonies! Overall a good tune, I think it needs an epic breakdown somewhere but that is just me.
It sounds more funky than jazzy to me. Nice bassline, I love the wah guitar that kicks in a 0:40. It ends a bit abruptly, but I don't know if you were going for more of a loop. For the short piece it is, its somewhat interesting. I could definitely see it being used for a flash game or movie.
Thanks. Most of my tracks are meant to be used for Flash creations. With people now making real music here rather than just resources the track definition seems to have changed a bit, but this is a track in the traditional sense, it doesn't loop. :) Glad you liked it though!
Not normally my kind of music, but this song actually has very interesting lyrics. This has definitely a more of an old school rap feel. I prefer this to new rap most definitely, as I can actually understand it! I dunno that is my opinion. Anyway! I like your voice its very suited for this type of music, and you put great emotion into the song. The production here isn't horrible, but you definitely could benefit from a condenser mic on the vocal side. I noticed a bit of clipping on some of vocal bits. That is just nitpicking though. Good mix and good song.
Yeah, the recording quality is a bit lacking. If I ever do get a new mic I'll really dive into my musical strains. Thanks for the review!
Good to find another guitarist on Newgrounds amidst the flood of techno stuff. Great clean playing and composition. You deserve more listens. It never ceases to amazing me that some stuff on here(AKA crap) gets so many views and stuff like this is unheard.
Forgive my randomness rant. ANYWAY.
Great tone. I use Line 6 stuff(I use the old Gearbox) for my tones too, I have not found anything easier/better yet. However, I think you could benefit from adding some more guitar layers. Maybe that is just me? Anyways I fanned your page, keep it up.
Hey thanks a lot for the critique. I'm still experimenting with every recording for a good layered guitar tone. Right now I'm triple tracking the rhythm part and I might stick with that. I just find that it starts to sound pretty messy when I quad track.
This is good stuff. MAKE a Longer version!
Best cover of this song ever. You play it better than Metallica in some parts.
I don't really think that's true, but yeah, glad you enjoyed it.
